Rolling Meadows, IL – July 10, 2015 – J.C. Restoration, Inc. (JCR) presented for the third straight year, with General Manager Steve Rost and Director of Operations Joel Hossli speaking about Time and Material Estimating at the Contractor Connection Conference, held June 16-18 in Orlando, FL.

The 2015 Contractor Connection Conference & Expo continued the tradition of being the premier industry event of the year, providing educational, training and networking opportunities for all. This year’s program focused on what it takes to consistently deliver timely and quality customer service when it counts.

JCR’s session was titled Time and Material Mitigation Estimating. The insurance industry is moving toward T&M as the standard method for commercial mitigation estimating and billing. This session provided an overview of T&M estimating and the corresponding transparency that results. A Commercial Case Study was presented that outlines the best practices of T&M estimating as well as the discussions that must be had at the onset of a loss to ensure a working trust between the insurance and restoration professional. This working trust will result in the common goal of customer satisfaction.

Rost and Hossli presented 6 one-hour breakout sessions to over 650 people.

“It was a true honor to be able to present to such a large group of people at this renowned conference, and to be able to meet and network with the best of the best in the industry is invaluable” remarked Steve Rost, General Manager.
